Theologian :: Pain Of The Saints

Theologian is an iconic post-industrial and transcendental noise project founded by Lee M. Bartow. Notable materials have been signed on crucial blast, annihilvs. On a conceptual level the whole Theologian music universe is surrounded by a dynamic system of symbolical references, from hermetic beliefs, neo-occultism, black magic to cyber-like cult conditioning, psych confinement, post-modernism delirium.

In this new album published on Malignant, Theologian carries on the construction of complex, harsh, assaultive and mystical sonic soundscapes. The compositional line is structured on a vast corpus of abrasive sound textures where heavily treated and distorted noises meet cinematic sound samples, occasional percussive ritual motifs and ecstatic droning e-guitar chords. The project explores once more the disturbing qualities of psycho-neurotic sounding effects and darkly isolationist-shamanic electronic excursions in a real independent and stylistically autonomous way.

As in the legendary drone noise ambient projects such as Troum or Maeror Tri, a few pieces delivered in this album demonstrate a certain interest for fractured, disemboweled melodious phrases which bring to the ensemble a hauntingly mournful inclination. Cryptical sonic experimentalism, turbulent power electronics and noisy in-trance electronic inferno that will spark the interest of listeners of Death Industrialism such as Atrax Morgue, Mauthausen Orchestra and Maurizio Bianchi to the expressively blackened dreamscaping ritualism of Maeror Tri, Voice of Eye and Deutsch Nepal. Seriously recommended.

Pain Of The Saints is available on Malignant.
